I asked Carlo Traversi about his latest sending spree in the Buttermilks: "Four 8A+ now. Yeah, feeling pretty good. I have actually spent some time out here on Kevin Jorgeson's The Beautiful and Damned and I must say it might be one of the most significant bouldering ascents in the world. Unfortunately all my skin is gone and the 3rd ascent will have to wait. Tomorrow is my last day in Bishop and I have a few last things to finish. As well as my girlfriend Alex who is very close to A Maze Of Death 8A+." Alex is, of course Alex Puccio. It would be a very significant send if she were to make the FFA. So, I was at least half right in my speculation about The beautiful..., but I guess it will have to wait.
